HE IS 1/2 BELGIAN, 1/4 PERCHERON & 1/4 THOROUGHBRED, GOING TO BE BIG, GOT THE COLOR OF THE GOLDEN BELGIAN AND THE BLACK TAIL & MAIN OF THE THOROUGHBRED , SMART HORSE WOULD LIKE 800 FOR HIM OR BO , HAVE TO GO TO A GOOD HOME AND WILL COME DOWN IN PRICE . CAN SEE HIM ANY TIME .
PICS WERE DONE WHEN IT WAS RAINING OUT "

1) I believe we call that colour "bay" 2) The all caps makes my eyes hurt 2)It has no age 3)You can buy a horse that is at least green broke for $1000 around here 3)if you look at the pics, not only are they done when it's raining (which is obvious) but they're taken at night; way to put effort into making him look the best he can!
While I agree that the ad has some issues, just from those crappy pics, he looks absolutely adorable. I'd take him, even for $800 (owning a draft cross, I think they're worth their weight in gold). I paid $1600 for my boy last year as an unbroken 2yo stud colt and even as a green broke coming 4yo, he'd be worth a good $2500 in my area.

What am I missing in the last picture? It looked alright.

I think the Amish are a lot like everyone else. You have really good non-amish people and really bad non-amish people. You find really good Amish and really bad Amish. Do the Amish treat their animals and view their animals differently yes. I think the fact that their animals are so crucial to their survival puts them in a spotlight as far as animal welfare. I worked with a few really nice amish folks who viewed their horses as horse and their dogs as dogs but still treated them kindly. Much nicer than some non-amish people I have worked with.

The picture I saw was someone looking like he was getting the horse to bow, that's why I was confused.



Just to throw this out there, please don't think all hispanics do the dancing horse thing like that. The "dancing horses" I grew up around were all Pasos, and their "dancing" was them gaiting across wooden boards (I think Paso shows do this as well but I've only seen them on YouTube so I can't say with any strong knowledge). They were prized and treated very well.

In the culture of dancing horses (which is almost strictly a Hispanic method and I see it as a *******ization of the famous Spanish haute ecole [I think that's how it's spelled]), more often than not the horses are beaten into doing what is demanded of them. Their heads are tied down to their chest in a posture reminiscent of rolkur. They are ridden with massive spurs by riders who aren't afraid to bloody their sides. When you see these horses "perform", they are lathered with sweat and their eyes are rolling in terror.

Maybe not all dancing horse "trainers" are that way, but the vast majority of them are.

DancingArabian, where did you grow up? Growing up a few hundred miles from Mexico border, all the "dancing horses" I've ever seen were Aztecas trained in the cruel manner I described. My ex-husband is from Hermosillo, Mexico, and he (and his family) saw absolutely nothing wrong with the dancing horses or their training. I've never heard of pasos being called (or used as) dancing horses.

I agree, I know many people that have paso fino horses. It IS in fact the way they gait.. They have short little movements. I used to ride one, lol. They always treat their horses great!! That is why I put lol @ the end of my comment.. I know, for a fact what goes on.. Some people don't, and like to incorporate "Beating" for things they do not understand at all, because they watched it once on tv.

Unicorn !!

Recently had to part with last unicorn due to clash of ideologies.

Looking for one living, healthy, and left-of-centre unicorn. Must still be corned. No substitues i.e. carrot-strapped-donkeys, or pegasus please.

Only serious offers will be entertained.

I already have a local permit, and must request only registered unicorns to ensure that the transaction is legal.

Many municipalities in Canada prohibit the possession and/or sale of certain animals, but rest assured, everything is above board.

Will pay more than average for rainbow-bearing/generating animals as well.

The "dancing horses" you're talking about ARE NOT the same dancing horses being discussed and shown here. The ones we are talking about are Aztecas (QH/andalusian crosses) that are trained by Mexicans who abuse them and beat them.

We know what pasos are and how they gait. They are not what we're talking about here.
